    I was bored on the way home tonight, so I thought I'd switch my DIS onto the instant fuel consumption setting, and was seeing how low I could get it...

    Far be it for me to condone wreckless driving, but I managed to get it down to 6.0mpg /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    Can anyone do better? (or worse, depending on your outlook...)

    Tried it in an A2 TDi, even at full throttle, could not get below 23.4mpg /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Was that in a chipped or stock motor? My 6.0 was from a stock 210bhp S3..

    Will have to do some checking with VAG-COM plugged in on my chipped A3T and see what I get... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    You must have jammed the roof half open and filled the boot to capacity (with a single comb and hair crimpers) to get the required air resistance and weight to get that low /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Err.. surprisingly not - left the crimpers at home /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    And I readily admit I'm very overweight, but not by that much /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
